Each city has its own unique character, but only in Istanbul will your senses be affected by the East. Istanbul is not only exciting, it is also breathtaking and awe-inspiring. In this tour, you will get to know Istanbul and its legends and history.

Galata Tower, the first leg of your tour, offers breathtaking views at its top. The 63-meter building gives picturesque views of the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn. In the past, the tower even inspired bold actions such as when Ahmet Celebi Hezarfen made his first flight across the Bosphorus just on homemade wings. He flew 6 kilometers and landed safely near Uskudar.

The Golden Horn is one of the most attractive places in Istanbul, and there are numerous legends and stories that surround it. One tells the story of how during the Ottoman conquest, the Byzantines threw so many of their valuables into the bay that its waters glistened like gold.

Another site included in your tour is Eyup Sultan Mosque, considered one of the most holy and important mosques in Turkey. This mosque is revered as it is the location of the tomb of Abu Ayyub al-Ansari (Eyup Ensari in Turkish), who was both a friend and standard bearer for the Prophet Muhammed.

Get also to know Istanbul intimately as you visit Pierre Loti Cafe, a place of meetings and partings, memories and sadness, inspiration and joy. The Pierre Loti cafe was named after the French writer Julien Vio who often visited the city.
